A New Perspective

For the past fourteen months that I have been blogging and bloghopping, I have been used to reading articles written by other bloggers. Using catchy words and titles to grab the attention of other people, most of them have certainly influenced their readers around the country and for some, the world.

But then as the years pass by, new features sprout out of the minds of the blogosphere’s writers. New ideas came to life, thanks to the existence of the media. What was once written and read can now be rehearsed and watched. One’s thoughts and opinions can now be literally voiced out, and shown to the citizens of the internet.

It was inevitable. Starting from the endless stream of thoughts by bloggers put into writing, to capturing still photos, up to making their voices heard via podcast, some of our very own Filipino bloggers have now stepped up to the next level of entertaining their audiences by filming and directing their work. Now, not only can their entries be heard, but also seen.

Welcome to modern blogging vlogging.

Video blogging, or what we also know as ‘Vlogging’ in our so-called blogosphere, sprung up from nowhere and has now established a position in the blogging world, including the Filipino context. These blogs primarily feature short videos instead of articles, which sometimes are long.

Just like the typical way of writing a blog entry, video blogging is created much the same way as writing an article. Recall a past experience, and put life to it by adding creativity to the way the events are told to the expecting readers. The only difference is, videos add up more life to the captured moments. Bringing up a media player to put their thoughts into action, Vloggers ‘direct’ these entries, and upload them to video hosting sites for others to see, or hear for that matter. Talk about blogging in a unique way.

Vlogging has definitely seen a strong increase in popularity and starting Vloggers gained readers… Uh, viewers. Using YouTube as the primary medium of sharing their videos, the Vloggers have indeed made a significant milestone in the history of blogging.

First, what most of the blogs had were simple write-ups, and then there came photoblogs and podcasts. Now, with vlogging on the loose, a new perspective has certainly been a great boost to the world of creative writing. Err. Well, directing of course.

Join now!

This post is specially dedicated to a certain campaign-slash-contest named “uBlog, i Vlog!” held by a Vlogger in the name of Coy. Advocacy of video blogging is not that much entertained in the Philippines, but the author hopes that through the use of Coy’s talent and skills, more Filipino bloggers will join the group of Vloggers in the society. 😉

[Who knows, I might get a promotional video for my own blog.]

    It’s good that you mentioned YouTube. It’s probably the most important factor that helps popularize vlogging.

He simply stares blankly at space whenever he thinks of a new blog entry, so do not dare ask him how he came up with them anymore. (more..)
